Tropical Traditions Organic Whole Flaxseeds Review and Giveaway

Tropical Traditions is one of my favorite companies for whole healthy food. I have tried many of their products, and I have never been less than satisfied with them. In fact, I made a nice big order the other day for some of their fabulous coconut oil! Love that stuff!

So, my question for you today is do you know the awesome health benefits of adding flaxseeds to your diet? How about the health benefits of Omega-3s?

Well, get this - Flaxseed oil is one of the richest sources of OMEGA-3 fatty acid, Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) an ESSENTIAL FATTY ACID (EFA). This fatty acid is considered essential, meaning that your body cannot make it but requires it and so must derive all of it from the diet. The average American diet is lacking in this fat. One serving of Organic Whole Flaxseed provides 9 grms of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.

Tropical Traditions Organic Whole Flaxseed is the golden variety. Golden Flaxseed is unique in that 48% of its total fat content is omega-3 fatty acids. Those are great numbers!! Plus, Flaxseed is full of fiber - both soluble and insoluble.  And if that isn't enough good health news about flaxseed, it is also an outstanding source of many essential nutrients, including: proteins, carbohydrates, minerals, folate, vitamin B-6, pantothenic acid, magnesium, potassium, iron, thiamine, copper, zinc, calcium and phosphorus.

I just recently tried Tropical Traditions Whole Flaxseeds, and I love them! We were used to purchasing dark brown organic flaxseeds from our local co-op, but these are even more fabulous! I honestly didn't even know how great the golden flaxseeds were until I tried these.

Here is how we used our flaxseeds. I put them in my blender in small batches to grind up, because you want them to be ground up into a nice meal to get the most health benefits. Then, we sprinkle them on our oatmeal or over cereal each morning. They have a nice nutty flavor that everyone in my family loves!

Organic Flax Seed - 16 oz pouch

You can get your own 1 lb. bag of Tropical Traditions Organic Whole Flaxseeds here for only $10.30.

  83. I learned from Tropical Traditions website:
    We believe the traditional fats and oils that have been consumed in traditional cultures for hundreds if not thousands of years are still the healthiest fats and oils available to us today, including coconut oil, olive oil, palm oil, sesame oil, and butter from the milk of pastured animals.
